Walt Williams and Tony Massenburg are Writing a Len Bias Book Together

Walt Williams (1988-1992) recently told Dan Steinberg's DC Sports Bog (the best part of the Washington Post sports section) that he is in the final stages of writing a book about Len Bias along with Tony Massenburg (1986-90):
“We’re still making edits; we’re in the finishing stages,” the former Maryland great said. “As we get closer to the final stages, I’ll be able to elaborate on it a little bit more. As of now, you can just say we do have something in the works, and we took a different direction than most have. It’s not so much the [Bias] story, but the effect of the story.”

The project is a collaboration between Williams, fellow Terp Tony Massenburg and a writer. Williams said they hope to have a finished product before the end of 2013, so that it could be released during the Maryland basketball season.

Williams is participating in a charity bike ride, the Catoctin Challenge, next weekend in Frederick County. He hopes to raise $50,000 for two charity foundations he supports. There's more on that in the Sports Bog story linked above too, and I wrote about it last year as well.
